Very disappointed in this restaurant. We didn't sit outside because it was only buffet there. We wanted to eat from the menu which we found was very limited. There are so many excellent restaurants in Aruba that we wouldn't go to La Vista again.

Great buffet! Sushi, pasta bar (custom made pasta dishes), pizza, seafood (crab craws, shlimp, mussels, etc.), carving station, and then all the nightly specials in a round serving station. 4 Star food. Very friendly. Iced tea was good. Didn’t get drink drinks. Sunset was gorgeous. Outdoor seating was Nice!

Recommended.

We came here the first night of our vacation since we’re staying at the Marriott and it seemed convenient. It was Thursday night which is apparently a special buffet night. We told them we would like to order off the menu and the hostess said that’s fine and lead us to our seats. We noticed there was seating available outside and asked if we could sit there, she said okay and we sat outside with the menus. A few minutes later our server came over and told us we can’t order the menu outside, and they outside is buffet only. We explained that we told the hostess we wanted to order off the menu and she sat us out here. The server was obviously irriatated and mumbled something that we didn’t catch. It was awkward so we offered to leave so that it wouldn’t cause an inconvenience. She seemed annoyed but said that it was fine and we could order off the menu outside. The rest of the dinner was subpar service, if you want to call it that. Only came by to take orders or drop off items. She never even smiled until we were walking out and she said bye. We spent more money on entrees than we would have on the buffet so not sure why we were treated so negatively. Definitely a bummer and will not be back even though we’re staying at the Marriott for 2 weeks.

Stopped in for dinner before the show. Nice outdoor seating on the veranda overlooking the beach. They have a buffet (which we weren't interested in) and a small menu of about 6 appetizers, 6 sandwiches, 6 salads/soups and 6 entrees. They accommodated me by making my Caesar salad with steak and it was good. My wife's Tortellini were OK. The service could have been a bit better. While they constantly filled our waters, the server could have checked back a bit more. Overall, average place with prices par for being a Marriott on an island.

Food is never good here. Has a stale not fresh taste. The butter served with rolls was actually turned, meaning the fat had separated from the cream. Food is just not up to Marriott standards.

When will they get bathrooms not shared with the pool? Or perhaps keeping them clean?

The service was wonderful as well as the food. My only criticism is that they told me that I didn’t keep my reservation. Even though I had a confirmation for the time they arrived, they insisted I was late. They even reported me to Open Table whom I booked it through.

A la Carte menu was unavailable. Only $65 buffet. That should be clearly expressed. If we knew that we would have made a reservation somewhere else.

Our sever was great, but the salad with tuna was less than stellar. The tuna was perfectly cooked, but it arrived without dressing or the promised avocado and almonds. We didn't realize until leaving that there was a buffet option. It looked good.

We went to the seafood buffet. There is an excellent selection for seafood lovers, as well as non-seafood lovers. The salad bar also has a wide variety of ingredients to satisfy the salad enthusiasts. The desert selection was ok-- especially liked the small portions so sampling more than one desert isn't wasteful. In my opinion, if you can't find something you like here, I'd say you were especially fussy.

We went here for Lobster Nite again and got Ryan as our server again like last year! Everything was excellent...quality of food, service and ambiance! A great variety of fresh and delicious dishes to choose from, very friendly and attentive service, restaurant is very clean and a pleasure to dine in! We would definitely dine here again and would recommend to any one looking for an excellent upscale restaurant with reasonable prices.

Maybe I was spoiled by the other dinners I had while staying in Aruba but this dining experience missed the mark. The food was average at best and for what is was... It was overpriced.

We enjoyed the wait staff as they were very talkative and humorous with their recommendations. There was a buffet, but we chose a la carte from the menu. We both got sea bass and a glass of reisling. The sea bass tasted slightly fishy to me, but the accompaniments were delicious, with the cheese sauce, mashed sweet potatoes and green beans. There was bread pudding on the menu, but we were too full to endulge. The bread was okay, but not very flavorful.
